I woke up Tue 8/31 @ 4:45am with mild contractions. We waited until 4:30pm when they were constant @ 5 minutes apart to head to the hospital.

Things started out fine, I expected to be able to do a fairly easy labor and delivery. However after a little over 40 hours of labor, three epidurals (first one was put in wrong, 2nd one some how got blocked and totally wore off - neither should have happened), I ended up with a C-section.

I am thankful I had a easy, un-complicated pregnancy, I feel like I made up for it at labor and delivery. However he is totally worth it all.

Ka'eo Zachary was born Wed, 9/01 @ 9:52pm. He was 20" long and weighed in at 7 lbs and 1.8 ounces.

Congrats Ms. Dolphin! Welcome Ka'eo!

I remember you writing about his Hawaiian name being created at birth based on conditions at the time. It looks beautiful. How do you say it and what does it mean?

His full Hawaiian name is Ka'eoapuleloa. We actually didn't base it on his birth, but the name has two parts. Part of it is a family Hawaiian name and in short the rest means "a well-filled mind" (full of knowledge).
